3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice brown color with a tan 2 finger head. Nice English aroma on the beer. Some nice maltiness with hints of smoke, wood and nuttiness. A hint of roasted malt. The taste is very similar to the nose but with a bit of hop astringency in the middle of the palate. Very nice beer. Very clean and sessionable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. gift bottle from neighbor’s last Minn. trip stash. Poured to a Czech-pils glass with fair clarity to the amber highlighted brown color, bubbles & froth head, and ribbony cling to the lacing. The nose was lightly roasted, caramel, with some soft creaminess. The f;lavor was moderately bitter, with a touch of black tea astringency, complementary, smooth malt, and presented some dryness that was tweaked by a hint of wood & smoke. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. A nice, uncomplicated American Brown.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice brown ale, with some great balance between malts and hops. Nutty but not peanutty, more of an almond taste. Nice, especially considering the lower ABV.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Brown pour with fairly then head. Nose and taste of malt, nuts, and a slight tinge of caramel. Actually tastes quite nice. Good lawnmower beer for those who are craving something less on the hop profile.

One of the better Brown Ales I have tried. Not so heavy that you can only have one and feel full. Chocolate and Coffee flavors.
